Aurelien Bustin is a postdoctoral research fellow at the CHUV-UNIL Translational Magnetic Resonance Research Center in Lausanne, Switzerland and LIRYC (Electrophysiology and Heart Modeling Institute) in Bordeaux, France.
He obtained his PhD in Computer Science from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in 2017. At the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) he developed new mathematical models for accelerated MR and to improve spatial and temporal resolution. This led to an interdisciplinary, translational, and collaborative effort with Johns Hopkins University, the Hospital of Nancy, and GE Global Research. In 2017, he joined the School of Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Sciences at King’s College London (KCL) and St Thomas Hospital, where he worked under the supervision of Dr. Claudia Prieto and Prof. Rene Botnar on the EPSRC program grant “SmartHeart”, which aimed at developing next-generation cardiovascular healthcare and that was based on a collaborative effort between KCL, Siemens Healthcare, Imperial College, Oxford University and Queen Mary University.
His research interests lie at the crossroads of cardiovascular imaging, MR sequence development and image reconstruction, with a strong focus on clinical utility of tissue characterization, late enhancement imaging and coronary MR angiography.
